The Festival of the Horse Combined Competition

2012 saw a new version of the BRC Combined Competition. We are pleased to announce that riders now take part in the more commonly-known Combined Training.

It will be a team and individual competition at the qualifier. For teams, two team members will take part in the Prelim/75 Section, riding a prelim dressage test and show jumping at 75cm. The other two members will take part in the Novice/85 Section riding a novice dressage test and show jumping an 85cm round.

Competing in the Combined Training in either section does not prohibit you from taking part at another level in the pure show jumping. The same horse and rider combination must complete both phases of the competition; elimination from one phase will result in elimination from the other.

Both teams and individuals will compete at the area qualifiers, highest placed individuals will be invited to the championships from each section. The winning team will be decided from the best three scores in both phases.

Tests are available from the BHS Bookshop


Online stabling booking is available for BRC championships. Once your booking account is created, it can be used for any future championship stabling bookings. Please note, stabling closes 21 days before the start of competition.

All members are now required to have their hats tagged before competing in any BRC qualifier or championship this year. For acceptable specifications, check the Hat Standards Guidelines.
